And then there was light! Well, sort of… The site is in skeletal form, but we are proud to be up and running and hosting content. OX4 was developed by offroad enthusiasts, for offroad enthusiast with the sole purpose of creating a community for dirt lovers around the globe.
Just Get Out and Enjoy!
Too many sites with regards to 4×4 and adventure travel seem to be stifled with high tech gear reviews and a feeling that you need the most expensive doodad to be able to be a part of their club. Let’s lighten up already and get back to the real reason we buy these vehicles in the first place: the passion and love for adventure!
Our friends and family will tell you that we spend too much time and money tinkering on our silly little trucks, and a majority of the time that may be correct (I for one have an entire Nissan Titan suspension setup sitting in my garage waiting for a free weekend to be swapped over to my Nissan Xterra). But the reason I do the wrenching is simply because I enjoy creating something that acts as my vessel in assisting me to explore and reach the remote and beautiful wilderness outside the comfort of my door. A challenge! A way of fulfilling that desire to travel. These vehicles provide access to the most serene places on earth and open up a whole world in a unique way otherwise difficult to replicate.
It’s not the destination, but the journey
I find great joy in the mechanical challenge of traveling by 4WD and hope to share my passion with you via OX4 as well as offer a home to those seeking information and camaraderie. While the journey to our destination is half the fun, rolling into camp laughing with friends at the end of the day knowing that you made it under your own power is the icing on the cake. You may meet some of those friends here, so please be polite, treat others with respect and be open to new ways of thinking about our vehicles and the world we travel in.
